10 no's and 36 remembers.
I was unaware that Sta-Puf was a cereal. Being a child during the early TV years made many of these are familiar names. And please leave the commercials in the downloads when possible. Thanks for the list.

I might be mistaken on it later becoming a cereal. I do so much research that occasionally all this info gets mixed together and new imaginary things are born. Sometimes I have to remind myself "Prince Vegeta did NOT appear on the DuMont Network" (well, I don't really need to remind myself that, but you get the idea)....though that would have been fun to watch!

Think you are mistaken on that one.Doubt that you could consume Sta-Puf without becoming violently ill.I remember most of the brands listed.Especially Duz,who included pretty nice drinking glasses with their detergent.Also Sego,had a fat school teacher who drank that in her futile attempt to lose weight.
